Having survived a major scare at Artemio Franchi, Juventus aim to return to winning ways against Roma, a team that continue to underperform.
The Giallorossi couldn’t beat Sampdoria at their Olimpico and now need to win in Turin if they want to return to the title race.
Juventus ended the last season on a high despite losing Coppa Italia final to Napoli and they continued where they left off this term.
The Bianconeri got revenge on the Azzurri by beating them in the Italian Super Cup match, while four straight victories in the Serie A hinted the team would have no problems defending the league title this season.
However, Juventus produced an under-par showing at Artemio Franchi in midweek and they were very fortunate not to lose the game after being completely outplayed by Fiorentina.
The Bianconeri are, nonetheless, expected to return to the right track and 888sport has them at 1.67 (2/3) to beat Roma in Turin.
Mirko Vucinic and Claudio Marchisio are expected to return to the starting line-up, but Simone Pepe and Simone Padoin remain sidelined.
Probable starting line-up (3-5-2): Buffon – Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini – Isla, Vidal, Pirlo, Marchisio, Asamoah – Vucinic, Giovinco.
Despite the heavy investment in the playing squad and the arrival of experienced coach Zdenek Zeman, Roma have experienced numerous problems at the start of the season.
The Giallorossi have failed to win any of their first three home games, having lost to Bologna and shared spoils with Catania and Sampdoria, so it is clear that something is not working properly.
On the other hand, Roma recorded a 3-1 victory over Inter at Meazza, while they were awarded a win over Cagliari, which means they are now searching for the third successive away triumph.
This may be a long shot, but you should know BetVictor pays 5.25 (17/4) on Roma to bring all three points to Olimpico.
Daniele De Rossi should return to the starting line-up, but Miralem Pjanic will not be risked after picking up a groin injury. Pablo Osvaldo, Dodo and Bogdan Lobont are all out injured.
Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): Stekelenburg – Taddei, Burdisso, Castan, Balzaretti – Florenzi, Tachtsidis, De Rossi – Lamela, Destro, Totti.
